The home is a stunning, contemporary, high quality, one-off Architecturally designed, five bed/five ensuite property with unique features, alongside a delightful 3 bedroomed barn conversion. Ideal for equestrian pursuits as the property also includes a newly built sand school with planning permission for a large outbuilding (60’ x 40’) that could include stables, and has a separate entrance with plenty of space for parking and a yard. It’s a glorious 15 minute ride down gently sloping paths to the local beach with additional bridleways all throughout the area.
The stone and cedar Barn was artfully converted and extended from the original pig sty into a delightful 3 bedroom property with the same stunning views. Since 2014 the barn has comfortably housed the builder and his family during the construction of two other luxury properties nearby, with the third ‘The Lookout’, currently in progress as part of this sale.
Matthew Greenland, founder of MGL of St Dogmaels and Cardigan, is a builder well known for excellent standards of workmanship and fine attention to detail, providing high quality alterations, renovations, refurbishments and new builds across Cardigan and West Wales. Covering every aspect of building including structural alterations and space planning, bathroom and kitchen refurbishments and full property renovations, Matthew and his team of 8 highly skilled craftsmen pride themselves on a reputation earned by ensuring rigorous quality control and the highest standards of workmanship, sourcing the majority of their trade and materials locally in West Wales.
Nominated for numerous awards over the years, Matthew received an Award for Building Excellence in 2009 for an impressive Carmarthenshire property. The Lookout along with two other unique neighbouring homes built by MGL, are impressively located properties of superb design and impeccable quality.
St Dogmaels is a village, parish and community in North Pembrokeshire, on the estuary of the River Teifi, a mile downstream from the town of Cardigan in neighbouring Ceredigion. It is a picturesque rather quaint village with colourful cottages (formerly fisherman’s homes) lining the hilly streets, where the remains of a 12th century Tironian Abbey and its’ grounds hosts cultural events and a weekly Farmers Market (every Tuesday at the Duck Pond in the Abbey grounds) that recently won British Market of the Year. The towns feature Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian architecture, with the area rich in history that include ancient sites in both communities including Neolithic standing stones, Iron Age hill forts, an Abbey, Castle’s and an ancient fishing trap.
The White Hart Inn is in the village centre with the Ferry Inn providing wonderful views of the estuary from multiple decks overhanging the water – serving excellent food in a convivial atmosphere. Walk the many paths to catch a glimpse of local wildlife on the Teifi including Wildfowl, Waders, Cormorant and sea birds or visit local beaches like Poppit Sands – a blue flagged beach backed by sand dunes, where the estuary meets the sea.
Cardigan is a popular market town featuring Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian architecture with a busy high street of shops, boutiques, cafes and pubs. It boasts an arts theatre with cinema, three supermarkets, small hospital, college, swimming pool and leisure centre. The harbour is set three miles from the mouth of the River Teifi in the form of riverside wharves upstream of the medieval bridge. The maritime harbour was once busy transporting locally produced cloth from nearby mills, slate and tin-plate.
Both towns are less hour away from M4 to the south and the university town of Aberystwyth to the north.
The Lookout is a unique, well thought out design with highly stylised innovative features, positioned to maximize the views from the spectacular elevated position overlooking acres and acres of bucolic landscape, up and down the Teifi River estuary and the pretty town of Cardigan. Walls of glass with large sliding doors on both the basement level and ground floor permit abundant natural light into the spacious open plan layout and maximize the views - immediately drawing one’s eye to the visual spectacle beyond. There’s a sense of bringing the outside in, of enjoying the ever changing coastal countryside and enormous Pembrokeshire skies whilst observing the activities on the river below.
A softly curved roof of living, flowering Sedum edged with pebbles adds a unique and visually impactful element of the eco construction. Integrated roof line lights accent the gracious shape and form. A living roof helps to provide a microclimate for insects and birdlife, reducing surface run off of rainfall, plus aiding heat reduction.
Underfloor heating to the basement and ground floor level is comfortable and efficient, keeping clean uncluttered aesthetic qualities in the open plan design. Two solar thermal panels contribute to the hot water and the house benefits from mains service for gas, electricity, water and drainage.
Some interior elements of the home can be customised to suit the buyer depending on timing and the build progression. The home is on trend with with Farrow and Ball neutrals of white and grey shades complimented by the Anthracite UPVC window frames. Included are high quality porcelain tiles in the each of the Ensuite bath/shower rooms with contemporary stylised sanitary ware, modern shower trays and screens, plus luxury fixtures and fittings. Porcelain tiles have been laid in the utility with a choice of cabinetry and white goods. Flooring throughout the remainder of the house can be chosen by the purchaser along with the kitchen cabinetry to create your dream kitchen. A bespoke open-tread oak, steel and glass staircase is suggested but not yet committed to, providing further choice for the possibility of an architectural statement in the spacious open plan entrance hall.
Approached from the landscaped parking area a path leads to the main entrance:
A handsome aluminium door of anthracite colour with panel window alongside provides an impressive entry to the spacious hall and open plan living areas. A large coat closet housing the underfloor heating equipment features two timber doors finished with an anthracite colour.
